The following is an excerpt from an I.I.I, article published late last week on their website. It shows one more reason to have a Licensed Public Adjuster on your side when the time comes to make a claim. If the insurance company is using computer models to determine how much to pay for your loss, and not applying local construction knowledge, you may be in for a great big surprise when their “estimate for repairs” comes back.
At American Property Loss Services, Inc., not only are we licensed as Public Adjuster’s, but we are also Licensed General Contractors with years of building experience to support our opinions.
How many insurance adjusters have ever built anything as a business? And could they have done it for the offer they are making you?

Costs of residential construction have risen in eight of the past 10 years, rising nationally by 3.3 percent in 2010 and 5.9 percent in 2011, driven by rising prices for raw materials and fuel. Additionally, weak demand over the past several years has slowed down production of building materials, such as gypsum used for drywall, with price increases expected.
